SOFI TUKKER (feat. Nervo, The Knocks & Alisa Ueno) - Best Friend

After two years of knockout releases, a Grammy nomination, extensive festival dates, and many other shenanigans, New York City-based indie dance duo SOFI TUKKER return today with their brand new single called "Best Friend" that is a sort of retrospective of Sophie and Tucker's friendship with one another. Featuring a stellar lineup that includes NERVO, The Knocks and Alisa Ueno, the track just premiered as Zane Lowe's World Record on Beats 1.

Speaking on the track, SOFI TUKKER explains:

"This song is a celebration of our favorite thing ever: friendship. It's about the kind of friendship where you can talk forever without anything in particular to talk about. Old friends, new friends, all friends! In the spirit of friendship, we just wanted to have some of our friends hop on a verse! We've been lucky enough to travel the world this past year and the best part of the journey is the friendships we have made and the friendships we have been lucky enough to revisit along the way. We (Soph and Tuck) have also become each other's best friend over the past few years, and we are so grateful to each other!

Our friendship with the Knocks is what gave us the confidence to pursue a career in music, thank you Broc and Jpatt! Nervo, newer friends, inspire us and motivate us to push ourselves and be relentlessly positive, thank you Mim and Liv! Alisa is a brand new friend who we share a ton of mutual friends with and we are also building a new friendship with Japan. We are so looking forward to going back! This track is especially fun because now we have an excuse to perform together, shoot a music video together and generally share the joy of music with some of our favorite people.

To the friends we have had long before SOFI TUKKER, the friends we have met along the way, and the friends we have not even met yet, you all make our lives so much better: this song is dedicated to all of you!
